Building Division Timelines
Haldimand County Building Division is experiencing a higher than normal volume of Building Permit Applications, as well as general building, property and zoning inquiries. Due to the increased activity levels and a temporary staff shortage, wait times for these services may be longer than normal. In particular, the review and issuance of Building Permits is expected to exceed the normal 10 day period.
Haldimand County Building Division is committed to providing the best service to each of our customers, while taking precautions during this unprecedented time. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this period.
Under the Ontario Building Code Act, you MUST obtain a building permit to construct, demolish, renovate, alter, install or change the use of a building. Construction may not begin until a building permit has been issued. Please click the button below to submit your application online.
